Perhaps the most insightful YouTube video outlining LEED ratings and the vital importance of green building… and a bit on China.

The web is full of videos explaining LEED and other green building systems. Some are good, some… not so good. But this one from Gensler’s Andy Cohen has my “LEED AP” vote as a winner.
As Executive Director of the worlds largest global architecture, design and consulting firm Andy is a champion of sustainable design excellence and innovative solutions.
And he speaks from experience having led significant sustainable projects such as the recently completed CityCenter project in Las Vegas, the largest LEED Gold certified project in the world.
In addition, Gensler just completed the 60-story Ritz Carlton Hotel & Residences at LA Live and is designing the LEED Platinum headquarters building at the Port of Long Beach, and Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building in the world, which will be one of the worlds most sustainably advanced buildings.
Once you’ve watched Andy’s TEDTalks presentation, keep going to see a perfect example of what NOT to do… filmed with a Blackberry Curve in my hometown of Bowie, Maryland.

Stay green, for whatever reason you choose.
All the best,

Chris

  1. Great explanation, especially the China facts. We’re gonna get our tails kicked if we don’t get on it.
